Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 83 / Monday, April 30, 2012 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES missions involve underwater detonations of small, live explosive charges adjacent to inert mines. The NEODS may conduct up to eight twoday demolition training events annually; these missions may occur at any time of the year. Each demolition training event involves a maximum of five detonations. Up to 20 five-pound (lb) charges (five lbs net explosive weight [NEW] per charge) and 20 ten-lb charges (ten lbs NEW per charge) would be detonated annually in the GOM, approximately three nautical miles (5.6 kilometers) offshore of Eglin AFB. Detonations would be conducted on the sea floor, adjacent to an inert mine, at a depth of approximately 60 feet (18.3 meters). Additional information on the NEODS training operations is contained in the application and final rule, which is available upon request (see ADDRESSES). Mitigation and Monitoring The mitigation and monitoring included in this LOA are identical to those required by the governing regulations. In summary, they include: (1) The time of detonation will be limited to daylight hours (i.e., an hour after sunrise and an hour before sunset); (2) NEODS missions would be delayed if the Beaufort sea state is greater than scale number three (i.e., if whitecaps cover more than 50 percent of the surface or waves are greater than 0.9 meters (m) (3 feet [ft]) to ensure visibility of marine mammals to observers); (3) Time delays longer than 10 minutes will not be used and initiation of the timer device will not start until the mitigation-monitoring zone is clear of marine mammals for 30 minutes; (4) Observers on boats and/or helicopters will conduct monitoring pre-mission, throughout the mission, and post-mission for the presence of marine mammals and other protected species indicators; (5) NEODS mission would be postponed or suspended if marine mammals and/or large concentrations of protected species indicators are observed within or about to enter the mitigation-monitoring zone: (6) After a delay due to the aforementioned wildlife being detected in the mitigation-monitoring zone, the mission would not be continued until the wildlife in question is confirmed to be outside the mitigation-monitoring zone, the animal(s) are moving away from the mission area, and the animal(s) does not re-enter the mitigationmonitoring zone for 30 minutes; and (7) Post-mission monitoring would be conducted to report any injured, VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:59 Apr 27, 2012 Jkt 226001 seriously injured, or dead marine mammals. Negligible Impact Determination As analyzed and described in further detail in the preamble to the final regulations, taking authorized under the regulations will have a negligible impact on the affected species and stocks of marine mammals. Authorization Accordingly, NMFS has issued an LOA to the U.S. Air Force authorizing takes of marine mammals incidental to NEODS training operations at Eglin AFB. Issuance of this LOA was based on NMFS’s determination that the total number of marine mammals taken by the activity as a whole shall have no more than a negligible impact on the affected marine mammal species, Atlantic bottlenose dolphin. The basis for this determination is described in the preamble to the final rule (77 FR 16718, March 22, 2012). NMFS also determined that the LOA will not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of the affected marine mammal stocks for subsistence uses. Dated: April 24, 2012. Helen M. Golde, Acting Director, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Equal Credit Opportunity Act (Regulation B) 12 CFR Part 1002. OMB Number: 3170–0013. Abstract: Federal and state enforcement agencies and private litigants use recordkeeping information to, for example, compare accepted and rejected applicants or the terms and conditions of accepted applicants in order to determine whether applicants are treated less favorably on the basis of race, sex, age, or other prohibited bases under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA). Information derived from these records provides an important piece of evidence of law violations in ECOA enforcement actions brought by Federal agencies. Self-testing records (including for corrective action) are used by creditors to identify potential violations and reflect their efforts to correct the problem. Absent the Regulation B requirement that creditors retain monitoring information, the CFPB’s and other agencies’ ability to detect unlawful discrimination and enforce the ECOA would be significantly impaired. The CFPB, other agencies, and private litigants use adverse action notices, appraisal reports, and other information in the application file to compare applicants in order to determine whether any applicants are discriminated against on the basis of race/national origin, sex, marital status, age, or other prohibited bases under the ECOA.
